KANNUR:  The CBI officers have begun to  interrogate CPM leader P Jayarajan at the Kannur Central Jail where he is lodged after being discharged from the Kozhikode Medical College Hospital, on Wednesday. He was allowed to be questioned after the medical board declared that his health was stable.

The CBI sought the custody of the leader accused in the murder of RSS activist Kathiroor Manoj, but he had to be shifted to  various hospitals following ill health.

The CBI team led by S P Jose Mohan will be questioning the CPM leader.

On Wednesday morning DySP Hari Om Prakash and two other officers inspected the room in the jail where the CPM leader will be questioned. The final decision on his interrogation was taken after the jail superintendent, SP and CBI met and discussed.

The CBI may approach the court once again after three days of inquiry, as permitted by the court. 

Jayarajan was discharged from the hospital at 10 am and brought to Kannur jail by a special ambulance around 12 noon. He was brought under the supervision and protection of a selected team of police personnel from Kannur AR camp. After being checked by a team of doctors he was allowed to travel by ambulance. RSS district functionary Manoj (42), who lost control of his van after assailants threw a bomb, was hacked to death at Ukkasmotta, near Kathiroor, in Kannur district on September 1,2014.

His companion Pramod was severely injured in the attack.
